A veteran and broadcast journalist known for his biting, to-the-point commentaries, Barnicle also broadcasts a nationally syndicated radio commentary, and, since 1982, has been a regular contributor to WCVB-TV’s nightly news magazine “Chronicle.”


Terence P. Jeffrey was named editor of Human Events, the national conservative weekly on September 3, 1996.

He does a weekly commentary on politics for the Michael Reagan radio show and has guest hosted the Oliver North radio show, the Alan Keyes radio show, and the Blanquita Collum radio show.
